Comm Center: JSA v Bahram

Comm Center is a fun game type that focuses on capturing points, but rewards killing specialists more than taking objectives. I played against my old faction Hassassin Bahram. They forever hold a special place in my heart. It was interesting playing against them as a different faction myself. We played the mission Comm Center. The objective is to both hold more objectives than your opponent and also kill more specialists.

Deployment

This game was won in deployment unfortunately. Eric placed his Shihab Remote in a very high position that could see most of table from the beginning of the game. This position held me back for most of the first round.

Round 1

I got to take the first turn. I moved my ninja into take one of the objectives early, but he was discovered. I coordinated an order between a few troops and all of them focused fire onto the Shihab. This killed my Haramaki and Ninja and left my Lu Duan without any Holo Markers.

I decided to focus on something different for moment. I took two of my front objectives with my Keisotsu link and then moved my missile launcher into position and fired at the Shihab and killed it. One more order was used to position my Link into a more defensible location.

Eric Moved his Farzan up the front towards my Keisotsu. I delayed reaction and was able to shoot at him with my HMG. I missed, but saved the armor, but the Keisotsu with the Grenade Launcher was hit with the impact template and died. The Farzan moved onto the next three keisotsu and lined them up for a shot to kill them all with an impact template. He failed the face to face roll and armor save, but his shot was successful and the impact template moved onto the other Keisotsu. They both passed with PH rolls though and survived.

Eric attempted to take the left console near his deployment with Leila, but failed. He then moved the Rafiq Remote into the right console near his deployment and took it on his first try.

Round 2

With the Farzan out of coommision I moved my  remaining Keisotsu towards one of the objectives, but they were pinned down by the Rafiq. I was low on orders at this point and could not accomplish very much. I managed to move my Lu Duan into a better position to guard my flank from the Ghulam link.

Leila and the Ghulams move forward and take another objective brining the total for the Haqqislam Bahram side to a total of 3. He moved his link team up far enough and shot and killed the Lu Duan.

Round 3

I started round 3 in retreat so this was the end of the game at this point. On my last orders I was able to move and kill the Rafiq Remote and grab one more console giving me 3 captured total, but I had so few orders left that was all that I could do at that point.

Final: JSA 2 – Bahram 6

Recap

This was a hard match. I played well, but lost too many troops early on and could not fully recover from it. I have begun to be disheartened with my JSA, but we’ve only been playing 150 point games. Next month we are back up to 300 points. I am going to play them for a bit longer to see how I like them as a larger force with more toys before I pass too hard of a judgement on them. Next week should be fun to take some larger toys. I’m looking at you O’Yoroi.

  1. Just played Comms Center this weekend too, really enjoy that mission.

    JSA has lots of units who want to be in CC, so don’t be afraid to go for it. If you were to have a do-over, I would recommend sending your Ninja on a CC collision course with the Shihab. You would be all but guaranteed to kill it, and that would have put your subsequent turns in greater ease. You needn’t nail all the objectives in Turn 1 in Comms Center, after all.

    • It’s a very fun mission. I’m getting the hang of these JSA guys finally. I had my first win last night. I think playing 300 pts helps. At 150 I was struggling to field a solid crew.
